Hmmm. Why CSX and not go along with Brightline? I actually prefer Sunrail use CSX and leave high speed to Brightline, though. There should be some crossover opportunities, though, for straphangers.It appears FDOT is holding a virtual workshop to extend SunRail to Lakeland. There could be 7 additional stops. You can view the study at the url below.

If they are going to extend it to Lakeland they might as well add an additional 3 stops and extend it to Tampa. I know CSX would need to approve it but people could take day trips to Orlando without dealing with I-4. They could start shuttle services from the Sand Lake Rd Station. The shuttle would take 20 minutes to get from that stop to either Universal or SeaWorld. It's a 10 minute ride to MCO from there. Disney could start a shuttle from the Poinciana stop.
